High sugar Friday night!!! I fell in love with sticky date pudding after my very first try on my birthday night dinner. I was looking around for a good recipe and I found this online which had been classed as a 4 stars recipe. The pudding turned out good but the sauce tasted a bit weird to me. Well, will keep looking for a better recipe ;-)
